Btw, this confirms my theory that no one rides in the great plains.

Here's how the ride partner sheet distributes across the planet! We're pretty well covering the place!
When it comes to the planet, we are hardly covering it, we well represented in the United States, poorly represented in Canada (2), Costa Rica(1) and Finland(1), and not at all anywhere else. Although I do expect at least one Briton and possibly an ozzy or two will turn up.

You seem to making the college campus rounds.

I forgot another Florida boy too, Kensuf, Gainesville, FL. He is probably still celebrating the win over Tennessee today.

Yes, I'm waiting for that tenure-track job so I can begin living as a grown up.

Well, in truth I am not even a Clyde anymore having "suffered" a loss of weight due to excessive cycling... And there are many Ticos who barely push 100, must less 200.

Lots of cyclist though - might there be a correlation?

Just to keep with the crowd and bust your chops a little. You put Becky in the right state but wrong corner. You have her in the NE. I guess it depends on how Random you got?

I am a Russellville, AR 72802

Looks like I'd be riding to Hermiston (of course, that means I have a family of four in my sister's crew to ride with) Well, at least I'd have a place to collapse and recuperate!

I'm in 02152. "Winthrop-by-the-Sea," the town fathers call it. It sounds much more mellifluous than "Winthrop-by-the-Airport" or "Winthrop-by-the-Sewage-Treatment-Plant." (There's a MUP around said plant, very pleasant, nice views harbor and the sea, but depending from which quarter the wind is blowing, there's always one spot where you don't linger!)
